On January 24th, Molloy hosted its annual Winter Open House for accepted students. Over 1,000 prospective Stanner families attended the event, which featured student presentations and a showcasing of the many academic, athletic, faith, and extracurricular programs that make Molloy one of New York City’s top college-prep choices. The Winter Open House provides accepted eighth graders a critical opportunity to meet our students, faculty, and staff and to ask questions before making their important high school decision.

During the Open House, Principal Darius Penikas welcomed a capacity crowd and unveiled some exciting news about our curriculum, including Molloy’s budding partnership with Amazon. This partnership will allow our students to access Amazon Web Service Educate, a program that invites students to take self-paced courses of study that culminate with Amazon certificates in the areas of Cloud Computing, Cybersecurity, and Machine Learning. These certificates are considered when Amazon makes decisions on internships and hiring. Click the following link to read more about these latest developments.
Molloy was fortunate to be represented by many student, faculty, and parent volunteers, including members of the newly established Parents Guild. One member of the Guild forwarded the following message to our Admissions staff: “I just wanted to relay how happy I was to participate in the Open House. My job was easy because most seemed sold on Molloy upon entry. Tonight’s attendees were obviously pleased with the prospect of becoming part of the family.” The parent went on to say they believed the presence and perspectives of the Parents Guild members made an additional impact on visiting parents.
